giardia

  1. Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    Hey everyone! Finn (10 months) has been battling a stubborn case of giardia for the last few months! He first got it around thanksgiving, took 7 days of metronidazole and 5 days of pancur. It seemed to subside for a month, then every 3 weeks he would throw up once and have a bout of diarrhea...

    Hey all! We have a 10 month old GR named Finn. He is a happy boy, but has had lots of reoccurring stomach issues! We haven't had a month without some sort of health problem. Most commonly puking and diarrhea. We are trying to figure out if there is an underlying issue. Has anyone had similar...

    Hello All, I'm not sure I'm posting this in the right place. (New guy here!) My golden, Louie (11 months old, no health issues, only dog in the house), has had diarrhea the last few days. It seemed like it was going away (his stool solidified for one bathroom trip) and then it came back again...

    I'm caving. So my little girl is 11 weeks old and we're having diarrhea issues.. again. I got her at 7 weeks and a few days after i got her she started having diarrhea which i think was just due to the transition and i was also transitioning her food. (Her breeder was feeding the pups Hills...

    Hi all, I guess I should change my user name to twins&golden(s) now! We have a very, sweet, submissive older golden, Izzy (10 years old) and we decided to add another golden to our family so she could hopefully pass along all her wonderful traits to the puppy. It's not even close to what we...

    I walk dogs for a local animal shelter. Today I showed up and they had signs everywhere indicating they had a giardia outbreak, but you didn't see the signs until you were inside the property. There was no communication sent out to the volunteers or on the Facebook group for the volunteers...

    My 4 month old Mister Goldberg was recently diagnosed with Irritable Bowl Disease, our vet says that Mister Goldberg is the youngest golden retriever he has diagnosed with this in his career. Mister Goldberg has not had solid stool since we got him. We took him to the vet because he had lose...

    Hi I have a gorgeous 7 month old golden. When we bought him we didn't realise he was infected with giarda (we assumed his diarrhoea was due to the stress of leaving his litter, then perhaps the fact he was eating rubbish off the floor when we weren't looking and then we suspected it was his...

    Hey everyone! This is my first puppy & definitely my first with such food issues! Ellie, my 5 mo old golden, has a super sensitive tummy & has faced bouts of diarrhea since I brought her home & transitioned from puppy chow(the breeder fed this) to different food. She had diarrhea first from...

    Ok, so maybe I'm jumping the gun a bit here, but I'm starting to worry about Shiloh's eating habits. For anyone who hasn't been following Shiloh's story, we brought her home at 8 weeks and she promptly became sick. She was already grossly undersized (2lbs 13oz at 8 weeks!) and to make a long...

    The parasite sage continues for our poor Shiloh. She's doing well as far as energy and appetite go, but at her first check with our regular vet (her first ever was with the er vet on call over Labor Day weekend when she got sick and was diagnosed with coccidia to begin with) they did a thorough...

    My pup is currently on tylan(tylosin) for bouts of mushy, mucusy poop. She had it as a pup and after 6 weeks if tylan it was gone... Until a year later :( I've been watching a friend's dog who just got the same looking mucus poop today (7 days into dog sitting). I'm concerned it is contagious...

    I'm sure there are a few people here that remember my posts about Nana having giardia and coccidia- well, I just finished treating her for the 3rd time, and this past week she's been having problems with awful diarrhea again. I gave her a bit of pepto to calm her tummy and it worked wonders...
  14. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Sorry about the topic, but how much poop is normal for a puppy? Nana gets fed twice a day- her poop schedule was usually twice after each meal, and then it became once in the morning, twice after breakfast, and once or twice after dinner. Yesterday, though, she pooped twice in the morning (5...

    Hi Everyone, My boy Pluto has a few habits that I'm wondering might be unusual? Normally I wouldn't care to bring them up, but I'm having a difficult time getting him to gain weight (he is 8.5 months old mix). You can't see his rib bones, but can very easily feel them. His tummy is tucked...
